the interest of keeping your attention, i will choose one. remember the great meg ryan movie, were you rooting for her bookstore to stay open? tom hanks was arguing his big bookstore would not put her out of business, but of course it did. i and my partner live in constant trepidation that this will someday be our fate. i understand that everyone wants to see a large space on a big avenue rented out, but when the space is leased by a large chain that competes with small independents, i believe everyone loses. the ripple effect the big box score has into smaller neighborhood affects the character of those neighborhoods. cesar chavez is similar in that is why, loud and does not have much personality. i could see why supervisors would not give much thought into which big business is complete. but the nearby neighborhoods and no longer have an independent pharmacy, small office supply shop, or in the case of 24 street, are in danger of losing its only family-owned hardware store. if a nationwide pet store or bookstore chain came in, that would be it for us. i've seen it happen in manhattan
